He lived in Midwestern, Southwestern, and Western states as well as Japan. While living in southern California he first worked as a music composer and prop master while playing music in the underground scene. He worked on film and television productions where he interacted with stars like Steve
Martin and Linda Hamilton and can say that for one brief moment he was directed by infamous Hollywood director Blake Edwards. He also took time out to learn how to boogie board in the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Now based out of Indianapolis, he continues to play numerous live shows which are audio-visual entertainment extravaganzas incorporating characters, wild costumes, original video and spontaneity.

He has been on the front page of the Indianapolis Star and pop critic David Lindquist wrote: "With ''Surfin'' With Jesus'' he can rely on a single tune to consistently bring down the house."
With diverse characters which include a British secret agent, stand-up comedian, rock singer, Swiss inventor, and eccentric storyteller, he lives up to the reputation as an artistic ''Chameleon'' which is the name of one of his songs and a promotional film. In addition to "Chameleon" which was produced with director Matt Sommers, Niswander appears in the Woodworks Films production of "Saving Star Wars."
